Mike Schmidt 2002 Topps Tribute – 500 Career Home Runs Commemorative
The early releases of the Topps Tribute brand does a great job of commemorating the special moments in baseball history that helped add exclamation points to a player’s career.
I have a handful of these cards, some of which commemorate a specific number of pitching wins or strikeouts achieved or home runs hit.
This is my latest addition to my collection from the set, the Mike Schmidt card.
Have a look:
The card celebrates Schmidt hitting his 500th career home run. I remember watching the highlights of that occasion, and the fist-pumping glory of Schmidt as he rounded the bases as he became a member of the ‘500 Home Runs Club’.
Thank you Topps for the reminder!! A fantastic card celebrating a great achivement!!
